Corn Bake Recipe

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving with delicious food!  Mine was incredibly relaxing, but I do not recommend cooking an entire feast at one house and then transporting it to another house 45 minutes away.  As a result, we had to microwave everything, which dried everything out. 😦  Ah well, I still enjoyed spending time with Jonathan’s family.

I made the family corn bake recipe this year.  This recipe is a no-fail deal, and it’s probably the most requested recipe in my repertoire.  The gooey cheese mixed with the crunch of the corn is a perfect combination.

I make this around the holiday season, for cabin weekends, and potlucks.  It can easily be served year round, and it should be.  Nom nom nom.

You will need:

1 red pepper

1 green pepper

1 onion

1 Tbsp. butter or oil for sauteing

3 cans corn-drained

2 cans creamed corn

2 eggs-beaten

2 boxes Jiffy corn muffin mix

6 oz. sour cream

6 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Nothing says homemade goodness like creamed corn.  Mmmm

This is where it’s handy to have a sous-chef.  If you’re not an Iron Chef, you will have to chop the peppers and onion yourself.  *sigh*  Isn’t life hard?

Lightly sauté your veggies in 1 Tbsp. butter or oil.

Now, this is the amazing part.  Grab a big bowl and dump in the corn, creamed corn, corn muffin mix, eggs, and sautéed veggies.

A big ole mess o corn!

Make sure you stir it up until the wet ingredients have soaked up all of the corn muffin mix. You don’t want any clumps of muffin mix.  Blegh!

Now, pour the mixture into a greased casserole dish.

Mix the sour cream and cheese in a separate bowl and dollop into the casserole.

See the dollops in there? That's what you want. Mmmm dollops of cheesy goodness.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, until it is golden brown.

Obviously I didn’t take a finished product picture because I didn’t want to ruin the surprise.  Either that or I am an airhead.

    • Healthier versions include nonfat plain greek yogurt & lightly sprinkled cheese on individual portions.
      I also like to spice it up sometimes with jalapeno.

  1. Oh geez. That looks good. Can I link it with my Monday Meals post? I’m making grown up fish sticks with various dipping sauces. This would be a great replacement for mac n cheese.

  2. Holy cheesy goodness, Batgirl! I love the idea of the pepper and onion mix in. I am definitely going to try your recipe to shake things up a bit. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. My aunt makes a cheesy corn dish kind of like that and I was disappointed she didn’t make it for Thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe though, I will have to relinquish the craving sometime!
